Creating a summer capsule wardobe could be the answer to all your problems.
Today we’re talking through how to build a perfect capsule wardrobe for the upcoming summer months.
First of all – what is a capsule wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothing items that can be used to create many outfit combinations and for lots of different occasions.
A capsule wardrobe normally consists of about 20 items, and is all about streamlining your clothes collection to make sure everything you have is worn regularly.
Think of it as an edit of all the staple pieces in your wardrobe.
The clothes in a capsule wardrobe tend to be neutral tones and focus around the basics so that everything is worn and can be styled with many outfits.

#1. Having timeless looks that can be used year after year.
#2. Rewearing pieces in different outfits saves money and means less waste.
#3. It’s quicker and easier to plan outfits – we could all do with that extra 10 minutes in the morning!
#4. Having an organised and tidy wardrobe (yes please!)
#5. You’re able to add in new statement bolder pieces knowing you’ll always have an outfit to build around it.
